As both a staff writer at Australian Business Traveller and a freelancer to other media companies, Chris regularly pens how-to guides on using points to book or upgrade to the pointy end of the plane, along with expert reviews on flights, airport lounges and hotels; pieces on travel tricks and strategy, and other features covering technology and frequent flyer perks.
Some of Chris’ articles have appeared in The Australian Financial Review, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Weekend Australian, Brisbane Times, Canberra Times, WA Today and INTHEBLACK magazine, and in interviews and segments broadcast by Sky News Australia, Nine Network and Channel NewsAsia, and radio networks across the country.
Whether it’s making the most of earning points for free on the things you’re already doing every day or strategically buying points to fly in business class at economy prices, Chris knows how to make the most of frequent flyer, credit card and hotel loyalty points, and is here to share those secrets and strategies with you!
Among the things he’s snagged using points: an international first class flight for less than $100, a two-week European honeymoon for under $3,000 p.p. (including seven business class flights and all accommodation costs), business class flights from Australia to Europe for a mere $110, and luxury hotel stays for 80% less than the standard room rate… and by earning the right points from the right credit cards (and other activities like online shopping and hotel stays), this could well describe your next holiday!
